Several months ago I started thumbing through a magazine at my optometrist’s office thinking it was a new glossy lifestyle monthly out of New York or L.A. When I saw it had articles about Redding and the North State, I thought San Francisco magazine had run a special edition and when I got to the masthead identifying it as a Redding magazine I was astounded. Have we come that far as a community? The quality of the photography, the layo ut design, and the professionalism in the articles made me proud to be represented so beautifully as a North State citizen. Since then I have enjoyed articles and photo essay s (even many of the ads!) as they have portrayed local people I know and in whom I am interested. Congratulations, Enjoy. You all and your publication are first rate. Thank you!
